Updated hotel - modern design
Nice bath products
Noise Level from street
I had expected a fantastic experience at this W hotel, it's in a fantastic city, but the W San Francisco proved to be a disappointment. While I recognize that this is San Francisco and that space is at a premium, from a location standpoint this is a hotel on the far edges of the Union Square area. Seriously if you're planning to be closer to the shopping and excitement, be prepared to walk. This hotel is on the way into town, so also be prepared for some traffic noise. While not an airport hotel, at 20 floors up I heard constant car traffic in my corner room. Paying the premium for a corner room, nearly $100 more than a standard room, was a waste.
You do get to benefits of W standard which include modern room features and amenities which is nice. You also get Bliss Spa products which do add a nice touch.
All in all, this is an okay hotel. Maybe I expected too much from the brand and the price. The W San Francisco is not a spectacular place in a city filled with great hotels that are truly in the heart of it all.More
